We have been coming to Anna Maria Island for about 14 years now and no visit would be complete without a trip out with Captain Randy.

Went fishing with Capt Randy on a half day trip. As soon as we dropped our lines we started catching fish. Lane snapper, grey snapper, porgies, a lot of red grouper which were an inch short but my girlfriend caught 2 keepers that were about 5 to 6 pounds. We had a shark eat a snapper when we were reeling... More

Since we had such a great experience with Randy last year we decided to go with him again on another fishing trip. Needless to say it was just as good as last year. He is a very knowledgable fisherman who shows his patience with the kids. Great day on the water!

We were the only passengers on the boat which was great for us. Randy went out of his way to help us see a dolphin close up. The... More

Took my wife and two kids on a fishing excursion with captain Randy and we couldn't have been happier with the experience! He was very informative and patient with all of us. Whenever the bait or hook was bitten off he was there immediately with a new rod or replacing what was wrong. Great time!

Wanted to do a little fishing with the family. Turned out to be the best day of vacation. Capt. Randy was so patient with the boys (and adults) it made a fabulous time. I recommend Capt. Randy for any of your fishing needs while at Anna Marie. Super guy and a fun time.
